On Nov. 18, 2022, our loving mother, daughter and sister earned her wings and was called to the heavens above. Donna was a dedicated member of Harry’s Chapel UMC. Prior to moving back to Bogalusa five years ago, Donna was a dedicated member of West Angeles Church of God in Christ. She worked for over 30 years for the County of Los Angeles.
